Sakura La An occupies the renovated top floor of a 50-year-old retro building dating back to 1964, the year of the Tokyo Olympics.

Our common area has a sunny terrace and garden, where guests can help themselves to coffee or green tea and enjoy our small library of books on Japanese art, architecture, pottery, tea ceremony (chanoyu), traditional kaiseki meals, and other traditional arts and crafts. Cultural experience programs for tea ceremony, kimono-dressing, and calligraphy are available (additional fees apply). A combined kimono-dressing and tea ceremony program is offered in our tranquil tatami-floored tearoom.

Sakura La An is more than just a place to sleep – it is ready to ensure that your stay is fun-filled and memorable. We look forward to ichigo ichie (一期一会) - the central concept of the tea ceremony, meaning“a once in a lifetime encounter”– and welcoming you to Osaka. View House Rules

    Great place to stay! Lots of conversation and easy to meet people for solo traveler while I was there. Very helpful staff. Super clean. Comfortable bed. Only issue was the place was pretty tiny. I think that how many hostels are, but there just wasn’t a lot of space (but the bed area had plenty of space for actual sleeping!)

    I literally can’t say enough positive about this place. The staff is amazing, they’re all so kind as well as extremely helpful and informative. Location is also amazing. Right next to a train station so getting around is super easy, as well as the market street directly beside it was my favourite part of the whole city. Endless places for food of all sorts. The beds were comfortable, never waited for a shower or bathroom, I could go on for days but just to wrap it up Sakura La An is it.

    Staff was very helpful and made the check-in process very smooth. The bathroom and showers were kept clean for the majority of our stay. I liked how they had big lockers to store luggage and the sleeping rooms. The beds were spacious and a little more comfortable than the other hostels I’ve stayed at. They provided free breakfast every morning, which was great! It also gave us a chance to talk to other people staying at the hostel. Conveniently close to a subway station too (10 mins)!

    Fantastic hostel with great homely atmosphere and very welcoming staff. Only complain would be if travellers where planning to walk around the location could be better. I had the JR pass and the hostel is 5 minutes away from a JR rail allowing you to get anywhere around the city and easy access to Shinkansen lines

    Great hostel conveniently located to transit. Super friendly staff. Only complaint is that the toilet stall is very small and cramped. But other than that I highly recommend for a quick stay in Osaka!

    There was nothing really that wrong with this Hostel but I stayed in nicer places during my trip for same amount of money so I guess this is why it comes out as less favourable. I think they may have overbooked so my friend and I got upgraded to a private room which was nice. Layout of the hostel is over several floors which is a bit random (Shower room in the middle of the social space for example), and its a bit tired but everything is still very clean. All in all, absolutely fine.
